The Significance of Symbolic Interactionism in Contemporary Social Sciences and Humanities
The theme of the conference is how the tradition of symbolic interactionism is applied and elaborated in contemporary research on social processes such as communication, identity, and everyday life. It explores the theoretical and methodological challenges symbolic interactionism faces in the light of the social transformation of modernity, and the following developments within the social sciences and humanities.
The conference invites presentations offering analyses of contemporary mind, self or society from a symbolic interactionist perspective, as well as presentations that consider theoretical and methodological changes within the perspective of symbolic interactionism over time, as well as challenges within contemporary society.
